The Emergency Card
Getting access to your medical information during an emergency can literally make the difference between life and death.
Your WishesKept wallet card gives emergency personnel immediate access to your medical conditions, allergies, medications, emergency contacts, living will and health care power of attorney.
It doesn’t matter where you are, or what time it is. Your emergency documents and information can be accessed by visiting www.emergencynotes.com and entering the unique client number and pin code shown on the card.
How does WishesKept Work For You?
If you present at hospital unresponsive and without your living will, medical personnel are forced to administer life-sustaining treatment and to rely on family and loved ones to decide your care.
Every year, more than 70% of people who take the time time to complete a living will are not having their wishes heard.
Your WishesKept emergency card resolves this issue
Your Emergency card gives medical staff instant access to a signed copy of your living will or advance care plan, DNR orders, emergency contacts and healthcare power of attorney.
The information can be accessed anywhere in the world - 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Preventable Medical Errors
If medical staff don't know about your allergies and pre-existing conditions, your care can be delayed or compromised.
Preventable medical errors are a leading cause of death in hospital. Conservatives estimates put the number of deaths at between 250,000 and half a million people per year in the US, with similar stats in other countries around the world.
Many of these deaths could be avoided if medical personnel had access to accurate and up to date medical information when a patient is first treated.
Your Emergency Card gives first responders immediate access to your medical conditions, allergies and other important information.
If you are hospitalized, your card also instructs hospital staff to go online to view a list of your medications, a signed living will or advanced care plan, DNR orders, emergency contacts and your healthcare power of attorney.
